In 2007, he wrote and produced several tracks on Ana Stanić's album Sudar[1] that came out in March 2008. Also in early 2008 Wikluh Sky recorded a song called "Lova" with Šaban Bajramović for the TV series Vratiće se rode.

In 2009, he produced the S.A.R.S.' debut album.[2] He also wrote the music and lyrics of the song "Pazi šta radiš" that was performed by Tijana Bogićević at Beovizija 2009.

In 2010, he has composed for the 2010 movie A Serbian Film, and has produced, alongside Dalibor Andonov Gru, the Mika K. single Bistra voda.

In 2013, he was one of the contestants in the first season of the Serbian version of Your Face Sounds Familiar.
